Ernesto Catena Padrillos Malbec 2016 $22 (4 stars)

It was SO exciting to open this new vintage of one of my favourite wines from last year to see that it’s just as delicious, albeit better than the 2014.  Fresh acidity, perfectly prickly alcohol and layers of dark berries, cocoa powder, roast beetroot and a squeak of tobacco.  ‘Padrillos’ means ‘stallion’ in Spanish, named after the wild herds that appeared in the dreams of Argentine winemaker Ernesto Catena.  It’s warm, velvety and has vavoom with venison and mushroom meatballs.
